Use of these tools can cut the schedule for completion by no longer requiring a manual effort over several weeks. Understanding of databases lets CentreIT provide the quickest reports by allowing reporting tools to utilize the database to narrow searches and use database stored procedures to optimize queries. This understanding lets CentreIT take reports previously taking many hours down to only a few minutes to run.
